Hutchings Institute has partnered with Days For Girls, an organization that distributes kits of reusable feminine hygiene products, educates girls about the importance of staying in school, teaches girls about avoiding sex trafficking and prostitution, and most recently, makes and distributes face masks to help in the fight against COVID-19. These initiatives deter trafficking by keeping girls in school and, over time, providing economic security. Hutchings Institute serves as an official center for Days for Girls. The Museum also helps Days for Girls in their program curriculum and training. The Museum has recorded the Days for Girls curriculum into six different languages for better online access. Currently the Museum is assisting Days for Girls to create video instructions on how to sew face masks for COVID-19. Part of our mission at Hutchings Museum and Institute is to make history. Our work with Days for Girls helps us make history by providing these resources for girls worldwide.
